Male friendship has been a thing of Bollywood movies like Jai and Veeru from Sholay, interesting trio of Zindagi milegi na dobara, and cult bromance of Sameer, Akash, and Siddharth from Dil chahta hai. Amongst all the exemplary male friendships female friendship has been cornered somewhere in the crowd.
Very few time Bollywood managed to capture all the warm, selfless, funny, loving, dramatic, and crazy aspects of female friendship. So, here we are taking you the list of best movies which were able to demonstrate real side of girl to girl friendship.
1. Andaaz Apna Apna – Raveena & Karishma
The friendship that Raveena and Karishma shared in the movie was overshadowed by Amar and Prem, but if you look accurately these two girls set the foundation of friendship. Childhood friends like ‘sister from other mister’ are ready to do anything thing for each other. This should be the friendship goal.
2. Aisha : Aisha and Pinky
Loosely based on Jane Austen’s novel Emma, Aisha is an amazing example of friendship between Aisha and Pinky, roles played by Sonam Kapoor and Ira Dubey respectively. We love the realistic aspect of their relationship.
3. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: Naina and Aditi
Spontaneity is the essence of the friendship between shy Naina (Deepika Padukone) and free spirited Aditi (Kalki Koechin). This friendship of Naina and Aditi is a perfect balance to love the life at its fullest. You have to watch Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani to live this crazy girl-friendship.
4. Dor: Zeenat and Meera
In this movie, friendship of Zeenat (Ayesha Takia) and Meera(Gul Panag) starts with need and ends with selfless relationship. This movie proves best friendships cultivated out of shared grief.
5. Queen- Rani and Vijaylaxmi
Friendship of Rani( Kangana Ranaut) and Vijaylaxmi(Lisa Haydon) is a relation to die for. This friendship of Rani and Vijaylaxmi is kind of bond which improves each other for life, for living. Probably the best female friendship ever sketched on screen!
6. Pink – Meenal, Falak, and Andrea
The friendship of Meenal, Falak, and Andrea was no less than Jai and Veeru’s bond. They didn’t just live for each other but also fought for each other and sacrificed for each other.
7. Parched – Rani, Lajjo and Bijli
Rani, Lajjo, and Bijli’s friendship has to be most unconventional yet most genuine friendship of Hindi film history. Three women in this movie fought everything from patriarchy to logicless traditions and emerge as saviors for each other.
8. Aaja Nachle – Dia and Najma
Dia(Madhuri Dixit) and Najma (Divya Dutta)’s relationship is an example of friendship that had survived years of separation and emerged stronger with time.
9. Tanu Weds Manu Series – Tanu and Payal
Payal (Swara Bhaskar) is that friend you have in your life who will shout on your behalf if someone is unfair to you, will meddle in your love life to solve the troubles, and even ask you to run to her when in crisis. We all need that friend, and we are lucky if have one. Payal is a guide-cum-friend Tanu(Kangana Ranaut) will always need.
10. Angry Indian Goddesses – Frieda, Madhurita, Pamela, Suranjana, Nargis, and Joanna
This movie is about a group of six women who lead their friendship to become the pillar of support in times of crisis. They express their fears and failures and most importantly, managed to built a friendship that has seen joy and grief together.
I hope you enjoyed the collection. Now, go and give a tight hug to your girl!
